    Random thoughts on the Cato piece…

    1) I’m not sure I ever thought I’d read a piece published under their auspices that starts from the implicit position that a rich, modern society has to establish a floor under economic outcomes for all. The rest of the debate is about how high the floor should be and implementation details.

    2) The obvious — at least in my mind — conclusion from their arguments is government as employer as last resort. If you’re capable of working, the government will put you to work at a reasonable salary and benefits. “Reasonable” gets tricky and right back to the reason that many benefits today are covered indirectly. For example, if child care for a single parent of two runs $15K per year, “reasonable” is going to have to be higher than for a single adult with no dependents.

    3) Countries in southern Europe, plagued by inability to collect taxes efficiently, have used the government as the employer of last resort for a long time. When the large telecom company I worked for tried marketing their new switching gear in southern Europe, they learned that “reduces staffing needs” was a bug, not a feature.

        I was in college so long ago that my college didn’t get student email until spring semester of my senior year of HS.

        Anyway back then, people actually intentionally signed up for mass email lists. One of them had an essay by Mary Emily Cummings, complaining that her college’s email-address algorithm was LLLLLLFM
